Gartner Recognizes Aternity as a Challenger in the Application Performance Monitoring Magic Quadrant

Amena Siddiqi March 21, 2019

Once again, Gartner has placed Riverbed (now Aternity) in the Challengers quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring (APM) Suites. Aligned with our commitment to becoming the premier cloud-native APM vendor in the market, Gartner noted our recent enhancements focused on cloud-native monitoring and improvements in scalability, as well as our integrated monitoring strategy. You can check out the full report from Gartner.

Let’s take a quick look at the core pillars of Aternity’s APM strategy:

  • Most complete APM solution for cloud-native applications: We have and will continue to focus on delivering simplified monitoring for next generation cloud-native applications with a world-class solution that is scalable, simple to use and deploy, and supports extensive container and orchestration technologies and platforms including Docker, Kubernetes, Red Hat OpenShift and Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
  • Best-in-class root-cause analysis based on rich data: Aternity APM boasts unparalleled scale and data granularity—most other APM solutions cannot deal with the increasing complexity and scale of modern application environments. With our big data technology for APM, we deliver the most comprehensive set of diagnostic data for troubleshooting even the most elusive performance issues. What’s even better, we store non-aggregated historical data for weeks so you always have all the evidence on hand to reconstruct and diagnose any issue after the fact.
  • Broadest, most integrated and user-centric platform in the industry: Riverbed is the only truly integrated performance management solution that spans applications, networks, infrastructure and end user devices. With endpoint-based visibility, Aternity is the only APM vendor that delivers end user experience monitoring that captures what users actually experience as applications render on their screens.

We look forward to delivering another great year of innovation, service, and business value for our customers!
